Tickets for Deontay Wilder’s Alabama Title Fight are Being Sold Now
Tuscaloosa's Deontay Wilder will make history on June 13 when he defends his WBC Heavyweight Title in his home state of Alabama.
If you want to be a part of the first world title fight in the state, you might want to go ahead and buy your tickets. They were expected to go on sale Thursday, but you can log on and purchase them through UAB's athletics website as of Wednesday afternoon.
Wilder will be making his first title defense since defeating Bermane Stiverne in January, and he'll do so against 33-year-old Eric Molina in Birmingham. The fight will be held at UAB's Bartow Arena, which holds around 8,500 for basketball and might be around 9,000 for boxing.
Wilder, 29, has compiled an impressive 33-0 record with 32 KOs. This next fight will be carried by Showtime and tv fights are scheduled to begin at 6PM on June 13.
